Denafrips Venus premium
Visually a more compact and arguably even more handsome version of the Terminator, the Venus is Denafrips' 2nd-tier flagship DAC and, as such, it is built around a very similar architecture.

FoilFlex interlinks and speaker Cables – Part 1 premium
FoilFlex sells high-quality state-of-the-art cables exclusively through a family-owned and -operated business with the aim to provide very high performance as well as great value. The perception is that High-End equals High Expense, and often, that holds true but FoilFlex aims to do things differently.

Holbo Airbearing Turntable and Acoustical Systems Aiwon and Palladian MC cartridges – part 1 premium
High-end turntables tend to be bulky, large, heavy and complex but the Holbo is none of these. This turntable has been very thoughtfully with ultimate transparency and neutrality as well as ease of use in mind.

Bryston BDA-3.14 Renderer+DAC premium
The BDA-3.14 is Bryston's current reference DAC and with its many inputs, streaming capacity and built-in volume control, it is meant to perform the central role in a multiple-digital-source system.

CH Precision L1 Preamplifier premium
In essence, it could be argued that a preamplifier's main function should be to allow multiple inputs to be switched and volume-controlled while being inaudible and the L1 succeeds in realizing this ideal to a larger extent than I have heard any preamp do so far. Sound quality aside, the L1 also excells in terms of functionality, offering more and more usable user-selectable parameters than I have ever seen on a preamp before.

Lejonklou Entity MC Phono Stage premium
The Entity uses the same input circuit, phono equalization, output stage and power regulation as the well-regarded SINGularity. With changes only in terms of the case, the power supplies, and the physical channel separation, the Entity promises stellar performance for a very reasonable price.

Highly anticipated by many, myself included, the Line Magnetic LP-33 has recently become available in the Netherlands. The LP-33 offers a slice of tube heaven at a remarkably sane price.

Bryston 4B and 14B “Cubed” power amplifiers – revisited premium
After the initial Bryston review in December 2017 my system changed significantly. Therefore, I thought it prudent to give the amps another run with some very different speakers.

Artesania Organic Line Modular Floor Platform premium
For some people, the sound is all that matters but for me, aesthetics are also very important. Fortunately, the Artesania Modular racks and floor platform are utter eye-candy. But don't underestimate them due to their pretty looks - they also offer a very serious upgrade over any standard rack.

Anthem Room Correction and Martin Logan Renaissance ESL 15A premium
As my experiments show, Room correction is not only beneficial for heavily compromised setups and terrible rooms. Even when the speakers have already been positioned ideally, the results are still far from subtle.

Thorens TD1601 Turntable – part 1 premium
Having changed owners has clearly worked out well for the beloved Thorens brand. The TD1601 strikes precisely the right balance between classic values and modern engineering. It offers all the benefits of the best classic Thorens turntables along with very high build quality and significantly improved sound at a very sensible price.

Origin Live Calypso mk4 with Multi-Layer Platter, Illustrious arm and Silver Hybrid cable – part 1 premium
The Origin Live Calypso Mk4 with Illustrious tonearm is flabbergastingly good! It keeps you at the tip of your seat in anticipation of what the next record will uncover but even though it is so very capable of unveiling microscopic details, it is in no way an actual microscope. Its full-color- and harmonically rich delivery is the antithesis of a cool or sterile sound. This is a music machine, designed to take away all the technical aspects to simply allow the music to come across.
